About the Kata HandsFree-

The Kata HandsFree-495 DL Waist Pack is larger than the 493 version of this bag. It remains a viable shooter's bag for anyone doesn't want to be encumbered with a traditional shoulder bag or backpack. This waist pack leaves your hands free to pursue your photography without the worry of a bag dragging down your shoulder or back. It's rated to hold your DSLR with a mid-range zoom plus two additional lenses such as a 24-70 mm f/2.8. Your camera is held in top grip shooting position so that when you unzip the bag, simply grab the camera, shoot, replace it and move on. This bag is the way to go when you want a lightweight bag that holds enough gear to get you through a gig.

The ripstop and nylon bag opens away from your body so that only you will be able to see inside. That's a big plus when you're in the middle of a crowd. Inside, your camera is stored in top shooting position so that when you open the bag, you're ready to shoot. The internal dividers can be configured to suit your gear needs. The inside lid has a storage pocket for media cards or batteries while outside there are two larger zippered pockets that are sufficient to hold your flash, two more medium range zooms or a water bottle.

When the weather is wet, simply deploy the built-in rain cover. Additionally, this bag will accept optional Kata Modi-Vers dividers that will permit you to customize the bag even more by cutting the dividers to exact shape to accommodate specific gear. The Modi-Vers is yellow and will make locating your gear easier in marginal lighting conditions. In addition to the snap coupled waist belt, a top carry handle is provided for quick grab moments.
